Nokia mobile hardware and software updating
Another MASSIVE benefit of going with a cheaper phone is that you’re no longer in bondage to a network on a contract.
You can shop around for the best rolling monthly deals and then, when you find a better one, ditch your current one and swap to another one.
The top-tier new toys and gadgets cost top-tier bucks; the latest high-spec flagships from LG, Apple, Samsung et al will seriously lighten your wallet if you are prepared to part with your hard-earned. What if you’re not fussed about having the latest and greatest CPU, display technology and software?
Are there viable options out there for people like you? The longer answer to this question goes something like this…
The bottom line is simple, though: these phones look new, feel new and retail for hundreds of dollars less than new handsets.
If you’re looking for flagship style and performance but want to avoid the high premium associated with acquiring one, site’s like Gazelle should be on your radar. There has been A LOT of big name releases that have completely revived the space, after a rather dull 2015.
And then, when the new i Phone comes out, for example, you can sell your handset and use the money to put towards the new one, all the while paying hardly anything per month for your minutes and data.
New handsets are great and exciting and all that but most people never truly tap the full potential of their phones.
They just want something functional; something that makes calls, browses the web and can take a decent-looking photo when required.
Indeed, when a friend or family member approaches me about new phone advice, most often they are looking for something that fits this description, and which costs £300 or less or about £150 or less SIM-free.
Look, as tech enthusiasts, we all love to ogle at the latest, fanciest, and flashiest gizmos; the cream of the crop, the best of the best from the likes of Apple, Samsung, HTC, and Google.
But the rapid pace of change in mobile technology comes with a price, a very literal price; it's expensive.
